    Time to get ready to earn some big miles. Shop the Block will be November 15th - December 27th

    Shop the Block 2018 Website


    To earn 300 miles use 3 coupons from 3 DIFFERENT Partners
    To earn 1000 miles use 5 coupons from 5 DIFFERENT Partners
    To earn 2000 miles use 7 coupons from 7 DIFFERENT Partners


    Some general tips to help when it comes time to track down wayward miles (because let's be honest there will be several of us who run into Road blocks!)

    • Grab several copies of the booklet to allow you to staple the correct coupon to the receipts
    • Keep every receipt connected to the promo
    • Take screen shots of any & all FAQs and fine print attached to both the promo AND each coupon.
    • Keep copies of any e-mails from Airmiles & partner stores about the promo.
    • There's no need to rush through and complete the promo within a week - more offers will appear on the website throughout the entire promo
    When it comes time to do the actual shopping leave all offspring & significant others who don't understand the seriousness of this hunt at home and have fun! If that's not possible there's always THIS option

    Placeholder for Coupons

    Still trying to find a customer service rep who is willing to share the links for all of the coupons so i can place it here.

    If you want to print off coupons from the website follow this process

    1. Select the coupon by clicking the heart in the top right corner of the coupon
    2. Click on the View Saved offers at the bottom right of the page
    3. Select Email My Offers from the top of your offers
    4. Fill in your email and hit send and you will get a PDF file to print out that shows both the front and back of the coupon that's easy to cut out and use
    While you could simply print your offers out directly from the page this will allow those of us who tend to forget where we've put coupons to easily find them and reprint them after they are no longer available on the website!!
    From the website: Please note, expired offers do not appear on printable PDFs.

    ONLINE SHOPPING

    Go to the website to access the portal, make sure you sign into your account before you click thru the link. Read the information about each store before you actually click on the Shop Now button.

    Airmilesshop Website

    There is ONE coupon for this and you must spend at LEAST $100 in ONE transaction

    Make sure to keep detailed records that include the following

    • date of transaction
    • name of store
    • pre-tax & shipping total
    • if there were any multiplier offers that apply to your purchase -- i'll keep a running list of those in this post
    Timeline for receiving miles thru the Airmilesshop portal is slightly different than other partners BTW, so if you do need to follow-up don't let an online chat agent steer you wrong!
    Directly from the FAQs on that webpage:

    When will my Miles appear in my account?

    Base Miles may take up to 60 days from the date of qualifying purchase to be posted to your Collector account. Bonus Miles may take up to 75 days from the date of qualifying purchase to be posted to your Collector account. Please note, if you booked travel through an airmilesshops.ca online store, your Miles will be issued up to 60 days from when your trip was completed for Base Miles, and up to 75 days after trip completion for Bonus Miles.
    Miles will show in your Collector account from airmilesshops.ca and the online store where you shopped, and Miles from a single transaction may appear in multiple line items if you took advantage of any Bonus Offers and/or sitewide multiplier events.


    If your transaction includes a multiplier offer it will post separately -one line for the base amount and a separate line for the multiplier. This image shows how a $25.00 purchase thru Amazon with a 10X multiplier posted

    Placeholder for suggestions of coupons requiring little or no cash outlay

    If you have a Mastercard attached to your Airmiles card use this link to opt in --use your card 25 times during the promo = 1 coupon

    Mastercard Opt-In
    Terms for this offer:
    Opt-in requirements: To qualify for this offer, you must (a) opt in for the Offer by entering your AIR MILES Collector Number and clicking the “Submit” button on the BMO Opt-In page on or before December 27, 2018, and (b) make 25 purchases using your eligible BMO AIR MILES Mastercard between from November 15 – December 27, 2018, inclusive. These 25 purchases do not have to be made at the same retailer and can be made at multiple retailers. There is no minimum spend amount required per transaction.

    If you have an American Express card attached to your Airmiles card use this link to opt in Use your card 25 times during the stated period = 1 coupon***NOTE this doesn't run for the entire time period, ends Dec 15th-- ***

    AMEX Opt-in

    Terms for this offer:

    • You must opt in for the offer by enrolling your AIR MILES Collector Number and clicking the “Activate Offer” button in the offer email sent by AIR MILES or at shoptheblock.ca on or before December 15, 2018.
    • You must use your American Express®* AIR MILES® Consumer and/or Small Business Card that is linked to the enrolled AIR MILES Collector Number to make twenty five (25) purchase transactions between November 15, 2018 and December 15, 2018 inclusive.
    • Offer period starts at 12:00:01 a.m. EST on November 15, 2018 and ends at 11:59:59 p.m. EST on December 15, 2018.
    • Purchase transactions charged to your American Express AIR MILES Card must be subsequently posted to your account by December 15, 2018 to qualify for this offer.
    • Purchase transactions can be made at any retailers or online stores and not necessarily at AIR MILES Partner locations.
    • There is no minimum spend amount required per transaction.
    ****my comment to answer the question someone will have about the condition underlined & in italics -- this is the POSTING date, and NOT your STATEMENT date.****

    SHELL
    opt in to this offer to earn 5 AM and complete 1 coupon by filling up with at least 25L -- only need to do this once Valid for the entire promo

    Shell Opt in

    SAMSUNG PAY
    Link your Airmiles account to your Samsung account and earn 75 AM plus use 1 coupon.
    Use this link to create an account and add your AM account number

    Samsung Account
    Instructions for how to complete this step is here on the AM website
    FAQs for attaching AM card to Samsung Account

    ****NOTE -- don't be confused by the name of this offer, you do NOT need to own any Samsung products or even use the account once you set it up, the only thing you are doing is linking the 2 accounts. You can do this and then never use the account again, so open to even Apple product users!! One shot deal so if you've already done it, you're out of luck****

    Hudson Bay -- set up to redeem your HBC points for Airmiles

    HBC Points to AM
    Again, you don't ever need to shop at the Bay for this offer BUT it does say it's one-time welcome bonus so probably won't work if you've already done this for another promo

    Airmiles Travel Hub -- book your first hotel stay thru the site, spend at least $100 and earn 100 AM and use 1 coupon. Hotel stay must be completed by March 31st (how will they know if you cancel after the promo ends :confused3)

    Airmiles Travel Hub Hotel Booking
    AGAIN, this is a one shot deal, only works if you've never used this method BUT if you have more than 1 card, use one that hasn't taken advantage of this offer and complete a coupon on that account

    Just received an email from AM advising of a Global Pet Foods promo from Nov 3-17. Get a scratch and win with every purchase and have the chance to win thousands of prizes including:
    - $25,000 cash
    - 10x $5000 cash
    - 10x Free Pet Food for a year
    - 2,500 Airmiles
    - 50x $100 GC
    - Instant win: free treats up to a value of $3.99
    - Instant win: 5 Bonus Airmiles

    If Global is part of STB I’m hoping for a double dip possibility!

    Not going to do another grocery shop between now and Nov 15 (milk, bread, fresh veggies excluded). I will be eating my way through the freezer and pantry in anticipation of some grocery shops needed for the promotion. I've got 287AM Cash in DS account will have more than enough in mine once they post next week. Just need to get some more in DH account and I'm good there too. Bring it on! I'll be ready for another Shop the Block promotion.

    I told my mom I would help her hit the full 2,000 miles this time. She only does the minimum number of partners/offers. I was like "ask for help!" Lol

    I just realized that our vacation plans mean I'll have to get StB done as early as possible this year :-)charac2:, I know!). I always meet these challenges, but I usually take the whole bonus period to get my shops in. So I'm gonna extra appreciate this thread and the motivation to meet the offers as early as possible!

    I'm trying to hold off on all shopping that can wait until this event kicks off! Only buying the groceries I need at other stores (costco, for the most part), putting together my christmas shopping lists (c'mon, airmilesshops!), and things we'll need for vacation (here's hoping for a great discount on luggage at the bay).

    Excited to follow along as we all work this event for maximum miles!

    While I typically try not to overpay for items even if I can get air miles, I think this year I won't have many sales on the growing shopping list: Converse at The Bay, Schleich horse sets, iPod Touch are just a few of the hot items I've been alerted to this year LOL I think Apple always has 20x the miles on airmilesshops, so that will be a no-brainer. If I buy AppleCare at the same time, does that count towards miles too?
